A new Nokia 7 Plus Android smartphone is reportedly in the pipeline and a new leak reveals more information about its specs including a dual-lens Zeiss camera.
The existing Nokia 7 raised plenty of interest, but its availability is limited to China. The purported Nokia 7 Plus could launch in more markets and the leaked specs paint an interesting picture.
Nokia 7 Plus Leak
A new post on Baidu shows the Nokia 7 Plus in leaked marketing materials and the images portray a smartphone with a dual rear camera setup featuring Carl Zeiss optics.
The leak also details other specs, including the previously leaked Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor that recently appeared in benchmarks. The dual rear camera setup could comprise of a 12-megapixel lens and a 13-megapixel one with 2X optical zoom.
First Nokia Smartphone With 18:9 Display
Recent Android smartphones have moved to 18:9 displays instead of the traditional 16:9 aspect ratio but so far, Nokia has stayed out of this game. If the latest leak turns out to be accurate, the upcoming Nokia 7 Plus will come as the company's first smartphone to boast an 18:9 aspect ratio.
The display will reportedly be 6 inches and will have Gorilla Glass protection, but the leak makes no mention of resolution. Judging by the midrange processor, however, the handset might come with a full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) rather than a QHD one (2,560 x 1,440 pixels).
Other Nokia 7 Plus Specs
The Nokia 7 Plus is further expected to feature 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of native storage space, expandable via a microSD card. In terms of design, the handset should have a ceramic or glass back and an aluminum frame.
There's no mention of battery capacity yet, but the Nokia 7 Plus should support fast charging. On the software front, the smartphone will launch with Android 8.0 Oreo on board out of the box.
No information is currently available regarding the release date of the Nokia 7 Plus or its pricing. Based on the specifications leaked so far, the smartphone is shaping up as a midrange offering, so it should come at an affordable price point. It remains to be seen, however, if it will launch in the United States and other markets worldwide, or if it will have limited availability like the existing Nokia 7.
With the Mobile World Congress 2018 trade show just around the corner, more details should become available straight from the source soon enough. HMD Global, the company who owns the right to launch Nokia-branded devices, said it has some exciting Nokia news to share at the MWC.
